TRAVEL GUIDE - WHY IBIZA IS THE PLACE TO BE THIS SUMMER
IMS 2014 - Hard Rock Hotel Ibiza
It’s officially summer (on the calendar) even though it’s been well warm and sunny for a while now. I shouldn’t be saying this because it will probably rain tomorrow given the weather predictability in UK but at the same time I just had to say it.
Some people went away, some stayed home. Either way we all sit back and imagine having fun somewhere else while listening to music in the garden or reading news of concerts and other live events around the world.
Even though I just came back from a trip I couldn’t help but get excited by the thought of heading to Ibiza and staying at the first Hard Rock Hotel in Europe. If you’re thinking “what’s so exciting about that?” then apart from the amazing way these hotels look, you’re missing the fact that there will be performances! Pretty badass isn’t it?
The official grand opening was on the 13th of June and it featured the legendary DJ duo Masters at Work and Chic featuring Nile Rodgers and newcomer Brian Cross.
Thicke is preparing to release his seventh album this summer and will give a taste of the new record at the Hard Rock Hotel Ibiza main stage on the 4th of July aka today! I’m not really a huge fan of his but I know many people are so I’m sure the place will be packed!
If you’re like me and like some unique music – apart from my love for metal and rock - Swedish duo, Icona Pop, will hit the Hotel on the 11th July. Their lyrics are the best! A nice mix of bitter and sweet that will give everyone those feels and make them jump no matter age or music taste. If I was to choose a night to go, it would be this one.
Jason Derulo is set to draw fans from around the world on the 25th of July so if you can make it you won’t miss his iconic “Jasoooon Deruloooooo” singing introduction to every tune.
And, you know how I said earlier that If I could choose a night it would be for Icona Pop?
Well, I will have to add Ellie Goulding too. She’ll perform on the 8th of August and she’s such a lovely and talented girl!
My mum would probably come down for Snoop Dogg who will take the stage on the 15th of August. Accompanied by DJ Sneak, Pete Tong and Brian Cross. I would love some rapping too in my life so I wouldn’t mind!
The following week Kylie Minogue will join the stage but for the big finale on the 12th of September there will be non other than PLACEBO!!!! Who better to close this amazing summer event than them, with their amazing songs and live performances?
Out of all the nights THIS ONE is THE ONE.
I can’t make up my mind, can you tell?
There will be pools and various “chill out” zones that will have activities and spectacles too. The line-up, the parties and the incredible hotel should be enough to make you want to party ‘hard’ at the Hard Rock Hotel Ibiza .
Which performer would you like to see from the list?
